, on a stage such as this. and i would like to ask you both to tell me what role your religion has played in yourview. please talk about how you came to that decision. talk about how your religion played a part in that and please, this is such an emotional issue for so many people in this country, please talk personally about this, if you could. congressman ryan? >> i don't see how a person can separate their public life from their private life or from their faith. our faith informs us in everything we do. my faith informs me about how to take care of the you have they arable. of how to make sure that people have a chance in life. now, you want to ask basically why i'm pro-life, it's not simply because of my catholic faith. that's a factor, of course. but it's also because of reason and science. you know, i think about ten and a half years ago, my wife janna and i went to mercy hospital where i was born for our seven-week ultrasound for our first born child and we saw that heartbeat. our little baby was in the shape of a bean. and to this day, we have nicknamed our first born child, liza,

other americans after a series of attack. >> americans' tolerance to religion goes to beginning of the nation. but there is no justification for this. none. >> focus at the romney press availability, his overnight press release. >> do you think coming so soon, after the event had unfolded overnight was appropriate? >> the white house also issued a statement saying it tried to distance itself from the comments and said they were not reflecting of their view. i had the exact same reaction. >> rose garden minutes later -- >> we will not waiver to the commitment to see justice is done for the terrible act. >> by this point, according to sources, they know the attack was a terrorist act, listed it as such internally to unlock resources. believes it was al-qaeda or al-qaeda linked group in libya. in the next three hours, president obama sits down with "60 minutes." >> i was certain and continue to be pretty certain that there will be bumps on the road. >> then leaves for campaign trip and fundraiser in vegas. 6:00 p.m., fox news has intelligent sources saying al-qaeda linked groups co
's religion should be private. i really do. i would have said, who is the real joe biden? and how -- abortion, that's a way bigger issue for the theology of catholicism. not fort church, but for the theology. abortion is really a big issue. gay marriage, jesus never talked about it. birth control, obviously they didn't have it back then. they're important issues, but not at the level of abortion. then you're getting into the fabric of the theology. >> i think what this does, this is obviously a conservative group that's putting out this ad, but what this does is it begs then for attack ads about romney being a mormon. >> they haven't really thus far. >> bill: he's consistent with his mormon theology. wait a minute. she's raising an issue. how do you attack romney who is a consistent mormon is this he does what they say. biden is not. >> it raises questions. just wait and see. >> bill: i'm telling you, i don't see any relevance there. they're going to go back to the 17th century on it? >> but what they've got it do is now they realize that the catholic vote is so important. >> bill: sure. >> t
there on the freedom of religion question and rough on the catholic church. from pulpits around the country and every catholic church around the country, they've been explaining what biden wants to do to catholic hospitals and taking away their funding and damaging them. >> is that vote in play as much though as the woman vote? i think that women maybe were moving very strongly for the president. now he's losing steam there. i think if i'm biden, i put the women vote. >> we put so much pressure on women being concerned about abortion and they should be, i'm a hard core feminist, two daughters and a beautiful wife. that's really important. but let's not discount what women care about, the economy and jobs as much. >> this is a very good point. speaking as a small business owner myself, one of the things if you look at data over the last five, ten years, you will notice that women are a very, very large chunk of the individuals who are starting small businesses in this country. i think also when you look at the economic data, i know the romney campaign has tried to argue that obama has been bad for wom
's history, protestants do not make up a majority of americans. according to a pugh forum on religion and public life, all protestant denominations now total 48% of our population. that's down from two-thirds as recently as the 1970s. it comes at a time when there are no protestants on the supreme court, nor for the first time on the republican presidential ticket. so what happened? the research suggests this is likely due to a spike in the number of nondenominational christians and americans who now claim to have new religious affiliation. 11 people have died from a deadly outbreak of meningitis and we're now told thousands of us could be at risk. that's from the centers for disease control and prevention which confirmed three more deaths, two in tennessee. one in michigan. it reports there are now 119 confirmed cases, including the first one in new jersey. that brings to ten the number of states reporting the illness. this form of meningitis is not contagious. it doesn't spread person to person. investigators linked the outbreak to steroid shots for back pain. cdc officials say 13,0
your philosophy or religion, should have the rights of property, should have the rights of liberty? what does that mean except it takes the mother's role and casts it to the sideline. she mass has no more choices. once it's a person it's murder. do you really believe that, mr. ryan? i would challenge him on these very fundamental positions he's taking. >> maybe you should xerox that and slip it to one of biden's guys. >> both sides can see it. both sides can see it. >> in the meantime, the polls, we had a little graphic up that showed pole ryization. because so many people have made up their minds, do you bank on this debate tonight being any kind of a change in the game? >> i doubt it's going to be a change. we've seen very few vice presidential debates where they've mattered. democrats want a little bit of momentum. these polls have shown that last week's debate didn't matter all that much but going into this final stretch with 26 days left they actually want something to believe in their side, to take the fight to the republicans. i think that's what they're going to be looking
for ivory isn't limited to one religion. in asia, groups of christians, buddhists and muslims all covet it. "national geographic's" two-year investigation revealed that governments are often complicit in the purchasing and processing of ivory. the magazine also found that ivory traffickers are operating with impunity, thwarting poorly written international laws and ineffective organizations designed to clamp down on the illegal trade. in countries where corruption is widespread, ivory that is seized by the authorities, often disappears. in 2006 a government storeroom in thailand, like this one in bangkok, was raided, and the tusks replaced with plastic replicas. meanwhile, in 2011 more elephants were poached than in any year since a global ban on ivory trading was passed in 1989. they were killed for their tusks and tusks alone. the reporter on the story, brian christie, joins us now, thanks for being with us. pleasure being here, hari. >> sreenivasan: didn't the planet say ivory trade was illegal back in 1990? >> it did. it did. and as soon as it did elephant populations began to recover.
that old time religion from obama last week. i hear it from my friends. the sense of deflation, looking in the rear-view mirror now. i think tr biden to come out, give the religion, remind meem what this fight is about is important to get the energy back. >> i don't think biden can win it tonight. but i think biden can stop some of the bleeding tonight and that's important. you know, something big happened in that first debate. barack obama has not had a campaign for president. he's had a campaign to stop from getting elected president. a negative campaign. when he didn't show up in that debate and when romney did and looked like an acceptable republican, the one campaign he had, the anti romney campaign got a big crack in it. he needs a campaign. he doesn't have one now. if he doesn't begin to get one tonight with biden and next week, candidacies can collapse. right now, there's no campaign in obama world. >> great thing about it, biden's been under a rock, he's been out there firing up the grass roots. >> we need to understand what happened in this debate wasn't just that romney was s
're both catholic how your religion will affect your context as vice president, both candidates nodded to the question and moved quickly to a discussion of abortion. which is an actual governing question that she should have asked instead. then also her final question about what is unique about your character as a man. what about you as a man, do you bring to this office? they sped past that one, too. that's one of the examples of why asking a bunch of specific questions will eventually lead to something that just doesn't belong in the debate. but there was much more energy to it, obviously. there's much more energy in this room right now. i think both sides are going to have a real fight in this room tonight about who did better in this debate. one of the things that is not clear to me is how easy this debate was to follow. i think those of us who are well versed in everything that these candidates are saying, it's very clear. when paul ryan starts referring to the cbo, i know what he means. i'm not sure what the swing voter, the low-information voter hears when they hear references t

, what i did find is that the recruiting is not driven by the u.s. truck strike, ideology or religion, that even a driven by a notion of clothes and hot. in a region that is cut off from the west of the world were people living on less than 800 calories a day that makes a real difference. economic deprivation and a real concern about government corruption is pulling people into the insurgency, not u.s. throws strikes or global ideology. all of those things are subsequently used as the indoctrination process. subsequently used to legitimize and mobilize and prepare their message to the broader world. that's not what is actually bringing 18, 19, 200 kids. the second thing is overwhelmingly they resent the does tracks. they resent the draws tracks of the national sovereignty grounds to national pride grounds, but they also resent them because they have the image that the drones and that the u.s. government is standing up a government that is not accountable to them. we hear this over and over. it did not matter what i was talking to. this notion that the u.s. is propping up a government
